When Merrie and I were rewatching Season 2, we kept on pointing out that Deeks was wearing plaid. When I was asked to have a topic for Decidedly Deeks my first thought was to look into how much plaid Deeks wears.
We start off with Season 1 Episode 20 “Fame”. He tells Kensi
“Don’t worry, Fern. I’ll be back.”
Marty Deeks: Why do bad guys always have such awesome houses?
Sam Hanna: What’s the matter, Deeks? Not feeling your loft?
Marty Deeks: This guy’s got his own Hobbit Shire.
[Season 2 Episode 20 “The Job”]
Believe it or not I actually have taken a chair and dragged it all over the carpet to make tracks so it look like I vacuumed… but I was also 15 and my Mom was coming home from work in five minutes.
DEEKS: And then she put her darks in with my whites and now all my clothes are purple, so I look like Barney the dinosaur. I mean, what husband can put up with this? This marriage is doomed.
KENSI: No, no, this marriage is doomed because you are OCD.
DEEKS: What do you mean, because I like to clean? At least I’m not the one that took a desk chair and dragged it over the carpet to make tracks so it looks like I vacuumed. I mean, honestly, who does that?
[Season 3 Episode 22 “Neighborhood Watch”]
“What’s in the BOX!!!!”
[Season 4 Episode 14 “Killhouse”]
Note: While working on this I realized that he doesn’t wear plaid that often but there is at least one character who does in every episode. Maybe that will be a summer project for me.
